The past six weeks have been eventful. In early September there was the ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis and that was an enjoyable week.  Indianapolis turned out to be a great venue with lots of good programming and some very memorable events. I especially enjoyed the Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture by Dr. Marin Burke entitled “Making molecular prosthetics with a small molecule synthesizer,” and the address by Alan Alda.

Scott Weatherhead, an MBA student at McGill University in Canada and the Social Economy Initiative's impact intern, travels through North Korea and South Africa in search of a use for his theoretical knowledge.
